It is also likely management has the authorization to visit various websites in an official capacity and the information that is exchanged on those websites could be used against the business by competitors.
Management privacy is a concept that must be embraced by all businesses. When members of the management team go online without being protected, a host of information is available to almost anyone who is online. This includes sensitive information that a business is not likely to want their competitors to know about.
Financial information, banking transactions, order processing and the like are all examples of the types of information that could easily fall into the wrong hands if the business does not take the appropriate steps to ensure management privacy.

It gives management privacy so they can do their jobs without fearing that certain private information will fall into the wrong hands.
